DxO Labs' logo. Click here to visit the DxO Labs website!We update our FilmPack review, trying out the latest enhancements -- and revealing one trick.

DxO has updated FilmPack to version 3.1 with several enticing enhancements:

  • A collection of 25 "Creative Renderings," otherwise known as presets. Among them are vintage effects, color nuances, sepia variations, partial desaturation, all intending "real emotional impact." All of which you can tweak yourself for a unique rendering.
  • An import option (and our trick) so you can share them and make a name for yourself?
  • DxO made the filmstrip preview resizeable so you can enlarge it a bit to better evaluate the effect. And it added a full-screen mode, too. And the powerful channel mixer gets color sliders, making it easier to use.

We gave the Expert edition (with all the tinkles and toots) a try. Read our update for the details.
